    SE25 1 sec lemme chat about road

    "if you know your history" applies to our fans as well

    I'm not really sure what makes us a manufactured club but better that than a nothing club no one gives a shit about even when the owners are running it into the ground. Sound familiar?

    A small number of them went in and had a go against hundreds. Hats off to them for having the bollocks and getting stuck in.

    I think it was your posts about Cardiff City years ago that got me into Urban Ed. I could see your point, my club changed massively when Roman arrived and despite all the success that he has bought it just ain't the same. It's gone full circle for me where I used to stand outside Redifusion TV shop at twenty to 5 to see how Chelsea got on to now sitting on me bed watching Final Score. I can't let them go but like I say Roman seems a bit more interested in football than that prick Tan.

    Just remembered another really obvious reason why I hate Chjelsea - it's generational. They won the FA Cup in 1971 when I was 8 - and everyone loved them because they beat the evil Leeds team of Don Revie. So all the 8 year olds of south and west London who didn't have a team suddenly became Chelsea. And then over the years all these blokes who weren't really into football, didn't play the game and didn't go to matches (this was before football was all acceptable and trendy) - they stayed as Chelsea fans. Being half brought up in south London, half in west, I was surrounded by them and it just became a rule of life that if you met someone who really knew fuck all about football they'd be a Blue (if they weren't Man U or worse).

    It's unfair on the rest of them who actually were going to the games and did have some actual knowledge but the idiot-count among Chelsea was higher than anyone else - and that's not just me being bitchy. If you met a Fulham fan, or Millwall, or any of the smaller clubs in the 70s or 80s you could pretty much guarantee they had some exposure to actual football and knew something about their club. So when BC Blues was talking about the grey-haired geezers chuckling about the old days, some of them really knew squat and are basically up at the Bridge because a load of early 70s journalists thought Peter Osgood had a cooler haircut than Billy Bremner not because they were spent their childhood and teens on the terraces. I've probably been up the old Shed more often than quite a few of them.

    OK slag off over. Enjoy the game you bastards :mad:

    There's a little-remembered Peter sellers film called the Optimist of Nine Elms made in 1973, I went to see it at some film festival at the NFT and I was a bit transported back to 70s London. But it's also got some great background footage of Chelsea

    bromley ...isn't as good as Lewisham.

    But yes, no one cares about a club who don't change their badge, their colours, their nickname and manufacturers a rivalry with a team 50 miles away. Can you provide something similar on the palace side?

    Bless you Bromley, you do your best, but if you're going to use a line like "if you know your history" it'd be better for you if you did :facepalm:

    Your famous Olde Club Crest is all of 10 years older than ours, dating waaay back into the 1960s and before that you changed badge about every 10 or 15 years. I had to look this up but I already knew it'd almost certainly be true, just about every club has done this.

    If You Know Your ‘istory: The Origins of Charlton Athletic’s Badge

    Also a nice bit of detail in there about whether you are the Robins, the Addicks or the Valiants too. I think Palace have only changed their nickname once; does that make us a better club? Nope (except by your logic of course).

    As for foreign supporters, yeah right Palace are the only English club that doesn't have any :facepalm::facepalm:

    Lucky to have survived! Noades, Goldberg and that messed up relationship with Venables, then Jordan...Part of our saving grace was renting out our ground, which other people owned to the likes of Wimbledon and Charlton.

    Re: above, Big Mal changed colours, nickname, crest and manufacturers, even who used the shared bath! About the only thing he didnt change was the ground!
